Summer is here! (drawing of the day + reading recommendation) / Ljeto je tu! (crtež dana +preporuka za čitanje)!


Today's fashion illustration is that- of a swimsuit! Very appropriate for this heat. What's your favourite thing about Summer? Is it eating ice-cream without a guilty conscience? That magical scent of Summer rain? Is it waking up ridiculously early, but instead of a cold darkness being greeted by a gentle dawn? Or is the way days tend to last longer, but still fly by so far? Is it the long evening walks? I know, I know...so many glorious things to choice from, who could name just one. 


Današnja modna ilustracija je - ona kupaćega kostima. Vrlo prikladno za ovu vrućinu. Koja je vama najdraža stvar kod ljeta? Jedenje sladoleda bez grižnje savjesti? Čarobni miris ljetne kiše? Buđenje smiješno rano ujutro, a umjesto hladne tame tamo čeka  nježna zora? Ili je to što se čini da dani traju dugo, a opet tako brzo prolete? Ili su to duge kasne šetnje? Znam, znam...toliko toga se može odabrati, tko bi odabrao samo jednu stvar.

Summer. Wearing a one piece swimsuit as a top. Why not? Time when we get to feel like a queen of a jungle- even if the only jungle we have ever seen is a concrete one. Summer. Time when imagination roars wild. Summer. The smell of roses in city gardens. Summer. Daily visit to library. 

Ljeto. Nošenje jednodijelnoga kupaćega kao topa. Zašto ne? Vrijeme kada se možemo osjećati kao kraljica jungle, čak i kada je jedina jungla u kojoj smo bili ona urbana. Ljeto. Vrijeme kada mašta divlja. Ljeto.  Miris ruža u gradskim vrtovima. Ljeto. Dnevni posjeti knjižnici.

Besides sharing this illustration, I would also like to recommend two books to you: Eva Luna by Isabel Allende and Selected Poems by Marina Tsvetaeva. I already wrote a book review for Eva Luna, you can read it here. I've been a fan of Allende's writing for a while (here is a review I wrote for another book of hers). I don't have a review for Marina yet, it might take me a while to write it. You can find some of Tsvetaeva's poetry (translated in English) on wikipedia here

Osim ove ilustracije, voljela bih vam i preporučiti dvije knjige: Eva Luna od Isabel Allende i Izabrane pjesme Marine Cvjetajeve. Napisala sam već ogled knjige za Evu Lunu, možete ga pročitati ovdje. Već sam duže ljubitelj spisateljice Isabel Allende (još jedan ogled možete pročitati ovdje). Za Marinu nemam još ništa napisano, a možda će mi i trebati još vremena da nešto napišem. Neke njezine pjesme možete pročitati u hrvatskom prijevodu ovdje.

  7. Divno, divno! Jao nemoguće je nabrojati što sve volim kod ljeta kad ima toliko stvari, mene je recimo najmanje briga za kupanje (doslovno mislim da bi mogla ljeto preživjeti i bez kupaćeg jer me stvarno ne privlači plivanje), ali me možda najviše veseli dužina dana.

    1. ja prije nisam izlazila iz mora i ljeto mi se vrtilo oko kupanja, ali ove godine sumnjam da ću moći i otići do plaže, tako da više uživam u drugim stvarima.

  8. This illustration is a perfect capture of the summer spirit! My favorite thing about summer has to be the longer days and the carefree feeling that the season carries.

  11. I think wearing a one-piece with a skirt is a perfect summer look! And I love as usual your drawing - this time it is so wonderful summerly and now I'm only a bit sad I don't own a swimsuit like this :) Happy Thursday, dear Ivana!

  13. Summer's here already, we are facing another heatwave, mercury is climbing up to 98F. Well as long as the A/C is running fine, I am not complaining, at least not too much, lol. Another good illustration, Ivana.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.
